    ... by Michele. The food and atmosphere at Guido's were very rich. I had stuffed guinea hen and Jay had wild boar which he thinks was actually beef. Guido's is known for its steak but since the steaks were over a kilogram they were too big for us. We were chagrined to find people around us sharing them. Duh!

    After dinner we walked through the streets to meet someone from our Cinque Terre tour company hoping to retrieve Jim's lost sunglasses and I was on a mission to ...

We talked a lot in my art history class about the contest that was held to see which artist would make them, and I wrote a paper about the winning submission.

    ... We then did some shopping on the main drag and got some dinner at Osteria Baccon del Prete.  It was fabulous! We shared some antipasti of salad and artichokes with olive oil, pork loin with potatoes and gnocchi with basil and lemon, and for dessert, a light pear cake with vanilla and wine sauce.  We like the closeness of the tables because you can talk with the neighbors!
